From the Southern Poverty Law Center (March 14, 2012):

….In the world of far-right extremists, Agenda 21 is demonized as a sort of Trojan horse, part of a larger scheme to shatter Americans’ liberties and institute a totalitarian, one-world government known typically as the “New World Order…”

…to the John Birch Society (JBS), one of the main groups promoting the conspiracy theory about Agenda 21, it represents the end of America as we know it. This is the same group, of course, that claimed President Dwight D. Eisenhower was a secret communist….

Missouri Saves Itself From… Something (May 10, 2013)

Just in case you were worried that our elected officials might be paying insufficient attempts to completely imaginary attempts to sully our precious national body fluids, or something, the legislature in Missouri has stepped up and bravely thrown itself athwart Agenda 21, the secret Illuminati UN plot to steal all our golfs.

HB 1647, as perfected and sent to the Senate:

SECOND REGULAR SESSION

[PERFECTED]

HOUSE BILL NO. 1647

97TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY

INTRODUCED BY REPRESENTATIVES MOON (Sponsor), CURTMAN, POGUE, ANDERSON, REMOLE, FITZPATRICK, RHOADS, WILSON, MUNTZEL, HURST, MESSENGER, ROWLAND, BRATTIN, PARKINSON, MORRIS, KOENIG, MCGAUGH, HOUGHTON AND BAHR (Co-sponsors).

5691H.01P    D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk

AN ACT

To amend chapter 1, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to prohibitions on certain policies that infringe on private property rights.

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:

           Section A. Chapter 1, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 1.370, to read as follows:

           1.370. 1. As used in this section, “political subdivision” means any state, county, incorporated city, unincorporated city, public local entity, public-private partnership, and any other public entity of the state, a county, or city.

           2. Neither the state of Missouri nor any political subdivision shall adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due process, as may be required by policy recommendations originating in, or traceable to Agenda 21, adopted by the United Nations in 1992 at its Conference on Environment and Development or any other international law or ancillary plan of action that contravenes the Constitution of the United States or the Missouri Constitution.

           3. Since the United Nations has accredited and enlisted numerous nongovernmental and intergovernmental organizations to assist in the implementation of its policies relative to Agenda 21 around the world, the state of Missouri and all political subdivisions are prohibited from entering into any agreement with, expending any sum of money for, receiving funds from, contracting services from, or giving financial aid to those nongovernmental and intergovernmental organizations as defined in Agenda 21.

They’re nothing if not persistent.
